Hello, i need help,
i currently using an ASUS EAX1650Pro as my VGA
combine with :
- 3x S-ATA HDD (2x Seagate & 1x WD)
- 1x P-ATA DVD-Writer (BenQ)
- 5 cooling fan (standard)
- 2x TwinX 1Gb (512Mbx2) CL-5 Corsair Memory RAM
- Windows XP Pro
- AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+
- MoBo ASUS M2NPV-VM (the one with a integratred nVidia GeForce 6150 video card)
- AcBel PSU 400W
- Monitor Samsung 17" (intend to replace it with an LCD monitor 17" as well)
i wanted to upgrade my VGA (only), so what should i get ?
(cheaper the better / budget-value PC)
i intend to play it on some games like terminator salvation, hawks, etc.... with high settings on 1280 x 1024 resolution.
should i go to Ati 4670 or 4850 or 4870? (kinda ATI addicted)
thanks for any opinion.
PS: how much speed will it decrease if i use VGA with PCI-ExpressX16 ver.2 on MoBo with PCI-ExpressX16 ver.1?
so, i can play any kind of game at high/full settings and ati 4760 can handle 'em with ease? (even with games like far cry 2, stalker, fallout 3, saint row 2, etc)
then what size of memory should i get? DDR3 512mb or DDR3 1Gb?
why i shouldnt take on ati 4850 or 4870 instead? (if i may know why...)
thanks for your opinion anyway....
but, can i run the games with high settings even with only 512Mb? I need to ferify that first....
and as you guys can see, i only using WinXp, so HD5xxx series is still out (using DX11, i'm stuck with DX9 here)
